Merriam-Webster added “second gentleman” to its dictionary on Thursday, defining the term as, “the husband or male partner of a vice president or second in command of a country or jurisdiction.” Vice President Kamala Harris’ husband Doug Emhoff, who severed all ties with his Los Angeles law firm on inauguration day and will be teaching entertainment law at Georgetown, said he will devote time as second gentleman to social justice issues and other projects in support of the Biden administration. Emhoff tweeted the day after the inauguration that he is looking to his predecessors in the role for inspiration. “I’ll always remember generations of women have served in this role before me — often without much accolade or acknowledgment. It’s their legacy of progress I will build on as Second Gentleman,” he wrote.
